If you’re the mom of school-aged kids, you’ve probably experienced enough children’s birthday parties to last a lifetime. It can sometimes feel like every single weekend is jam-packed with some sort of celebration or another, and while it can be draining on parents to shop for gifts and chauffeur their kids to and from whatever themed party their friends are throwing at any given moment, it’s totally worth it in the end, don’t you think? Whether they’re celebrating their own birthday or that of a classmate, kids get so excited over cake and games and presents, and with so many unique party goodie bag ideas floating around Pinterest these days, the fun continues well after the party is over.
As a child, loot bags were my favorite part of my friends’ birthday parties. I couldn’t wait to see what was inside, and even though the contents were usually the same – bubbles, notepad, stamp, pencil, and some candy – I cherished all of it.
Of course, party bags have taken on an entirely new meaning since I was a kid, and I often feel there’s too much pressure on moms to come up with totally unique party goodie bag ideas. A small bag with candy and bubbles will no longer suffice, and we’re left scrambling to come up with creative ideas that are not only aligned with the theme of the party we’re throwing, but that also include some sort of craft or activity, and that are completely devoid of unhealthy, sugary treats.
Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on which way you want to look at it), the internet is filled with all kinds of party goodie bag ideas to choose from, which you can tailor to the needs of your guests.
